For more than two decades, Bud & Alley’s, winner of Florida Trend magazine's 2010 Golden Spoon Award, has sated appetites with steak and seafood fare and filled eyes with panoramic views of the Gulf of Mexico. After taking a seat in the relaxed yet elegant dining room, guests peruse the dinner menu's tempting entrees, such as steamed Prince Edward Island mussels flavored with thyme, feta, and a kick of chili flakes on grilled tuscan bread ($24). Southern-inspired sides enhance seafood plates, from a seared red snapper teamed up with sweet dill succotash and okra ($31) to seared diver scallops paired with creamy grits, fried capers, and an edible bust of William Faulkner ($32). A fillet steak served with portobello mushrooms and asparagus ($33) sets the stage for a classic romantic meal as couples clink and enemies hurl martinis or glasses of wine across the table ($8+). A visit to the rooftop bar infuses meals with a festive mood as revelers enjoy spectacular ocean views and sample a selection of top-shelf tequilas from Jose Cuervo, Patrón, and Sauza ($9).

Doctor of Chiropractic Shawna Hogan?s biggest complaint about health care is that ?patients are so often rushed in and out of doctors? offices today without ever feeling that they are being listened to,? she says. ?My objective is to go the distance so that every patient feels that he or she is a priority.??
That attitude has helped her clinic, Regatta Chiropractic and Laser Center, flourish with a variety of patients, including multiple physicians, children, and pregnant women. When she?s not administering chiropractic treatments, such as manual adjustments, massage therapy, and cold-laser therapy, she?s helping clients slim down with Zerona noninvasive laser body contouring. In addition to making patients feel confident that they could slip through jail-cell bars any time they want, the Zerona treatments help patients struggling with back pain attributed to excess weight.

Emerald Coast Chiropractic’s Florida-licensed massage therapists assist aching bodies with a variety of massage modalities that soothe away stress in a private room. The skilled therapists know how to augment chiropractic adjustment with deep-tissue techniques that target a specific joint, muscle, or muscle group. Pre-treatment, staffers spend time with each client, addressing any concerns and educating on the benefits of massage.
